THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN WEDNESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 2, 1896. lfe VICISSITUDES OF LIFE. Sequel to an Experience of a Straggling Yonng Author. "You remember my telling yon awhile ago, when we were talking about the vicissitudes of life." said a struggling- young author, according to the New York Sun, "about an experience that I had once? I had a number of manuscripts, you remember, which I desired to sell and which I sent out to the publications I thought them best suited for. One after another they came back, until they had all ccme back but one. That, one, in my own judgment, was much the best of the lot, and I had built, strong hopes upon it ; and when, so to 6peak. it still didn't come back, I felt sure that it had been accepted. Eut after w.::t'ng awhile longer and not hearing from Jt, I wrote, asking about it, and the publisher wrote me a polite note saying they had no record of it; it had never been received. "That was the story as I told it to you, and I supposed that that was the end of it; and it was pretty tough, wasn't it? But now let me tell you the sequel. "Of course I wrote a polite, note in reply to the publisher; and in that note I described tihe. manuscript and said that perhaps it might yet be found; and later it was found, and, by snakes, they returned it! "That was solemn; but it was one of those things that are so everlastingly, gosh-blastedly eolemn that you have to laugh over 'em; and there can't be anything very terrible in anything that you can laugh over; so, you see, come to take it altogether, that experience was not very distressing after all." MOST PECULIAR ROOSTER. fie Very Much Resembles a Bird of Par-t- adlse To see a rooster that resembles a bird of paradise is a rare sight, but such a one has recently been a common spec tacle in Japan, says the New York World. This particular fowl was, apart from his gorgeous appendage, of the ordinary type found in Japan, except that he was a little more proud in his bearing than his fellows. It may have been his manner that first led to his selection as the bearer of a most magnificent tail. The brief history that can be obtained of this freak rooster is silent on that point. It prob ably was selected because only an arro gant, lordly manner could support-such a wonderful and variegated appendage. Be that as it may, the rooster did cer tainly have a tail 1G feet long. In it were all the bright colors imaginable. The tail was far more brilliant in its color ings than the shining feather-fan of a peacock.. ,- The neighbors of the Jap displayed no interest in the freak bird, but were amused by those who expressed admira tion and v.xmder, who were invariably loreign travelers. Then it was discove.red that the beau tiful long tail was not a freak of nature. "but the clever work of the ingenious Jap, who had fashioned and fastened the tail in such a way as to defy detection except after the most minute scrutiny. HIS Lfcli is PULLED. That Is How a Southern Congressman Regards His Lot. "Some people may think that a con gressman saves a pile of money out of his salary, said a well-known southern congressman, who was talking to a Washington Star reporter on the vicis situdes of running for office, and es pecially for congress, "but a man has to be a small walking bank to accommo date the large number of his 'friends' and supporters who need a little money for some urgent matter. In my state we have to make campaigns and appear before the people at meetings. Well, I have never attended a meeting but that I did not have some kind of a subscrip tion poked into my face.. Somebody wants something for a church and for missionary purposes or for helping some fellow who has been burned out. "You can't avoid subscribing, and have to head the list with the largest sum. 'I hen about the-time you think you are through with having your leg pulled some lazy fellow will walk up and say: 'How do, gineral? I had ter quit my work ter come out and hear you terday, and I thunk yer mout c-iv' me a dollar.' While you have the greatest contempt for the man, you give him the . dollar. "When you leave the meeting you are out anywhere from $20 to $50. These are just a few instances of what a candi date has to spend money for. After he gets through thecampaign and is elected he has to furnish every dead beat from his district who should happen to come to Washington with money. I've ac tually given them money and railroad tickets to get home and have them go back and work against me. IRONY OF FATE. it Pursues Two Eminently Respectable Ladles Who Could Not Agree. Not long ago there were two ladies stopping at the same Doarding house They were single ladies, be it said, and both highly respectable. But for some reason, says the Minneapolis Times, known only to themselves, they "couldn't get along," and matters went between them from bad to worse till they "quit speaking." They both got tired, of course, living in the sanr- J ousp ( a mortal enemy .9 ORBED "The Old Soldiers Favorite." I D 2 I r H 8 If A little bit of pension goes a long way if you chew "Battle Ax' The biggest piece of really high grade tobacco ever sold for 5 cents; almost twice as large as the other fellow's inferior brand. and finally both determined to move. Arrangements were made, and, as luck would have it, both moved the same day. Lady Jo. 1 loaded up her house hold goods in the morning, and in the afternoon a dray pulled up and car ried away the trunk, shawlstraps, and other effects of lady No. 3. Lady No. 1 was just composing her self to view the suiroundings of her new lodging place, when a wagon stopped at the front door and began t:i unload a collection of articles unmis takably feminine. She sized up the trunk and went downstairs, filled with a horrible suspicion, to interview the landlady. Her suspicions were true. They had moved into the same house. There is no more to the story. Of course, they should have miide up their differences and lived in peace and char ity ever aiter. But they did not. Lady No. 2 never got her trunk inside of the house. Snowballs Rolled by the Wind. Passengers on the Flint River divi sion of the Flint & Pere Marquette rail road who came to Flint, Mich., recently reported obsferving a strange phenom enon in large, level fields not far from the city, says the Chicago Tribune. Hundreds of snowballs, some of them of colossal size, have been rolled to gether, it is thought, by the action of the wind. The fields were covered with them, and nature accomplished in one night what it would take a large force of boys several days to do. Pure food and Drink. Ask your grocer whether Schillings Best tea is pure, whether other Japan tea is pure ; ask him what tea gives most tea to the cent, what tea gives the best tea flavor. Ask him what tea is money backed; ask him any question about tea suggested by our advertisements. Alsopure and money-backed: Schil Riffs coffee, baking-powder, soda, spices, and flavoring extracts.

BY THE CITY OF PHCENIX! Such is the Condition of the Churchill Addition But, notwithstanding they are now in th city itself, there are a few lots for sale yet at prices corresponding with the "Sound Money Doctrine" of President Cleveland and his cuckoos, which means that kind of a dollar which will buy two dollars worth of property. These lots are near the new elec tric car line which is now in operation. The lots are in the city and their occupants do not need to ride into town, but the presence of electric street cars is popular and adds market value to the property. Inside of five years this will be business property. Buy a lot now for a residence and when business crowds you out the rents will sup port you in a house outside in some addition where you can keep a horse and drive into town and collect your rents. Terms, i cash i in one year, i in two years at 10 per cent interest. CLAEK CHUECHILL 37-39 South Center St., PhoBnix, Ariz.
